My Dear

I’m sorry I’ve not written before but I’ve been rushing all over England London - Newcastle - London - Edinburgh - London & caught a cold into the bargain.
Let me have the Guildford Place address1 in case I come up any way. I would be up most days at the beginning of January to take the EFDS singing at Chelsea2.
I like the “River”3 - I haven’t got hold of the other yet.
Yrs
